Around the web I've been seeing bloggers giving thanks for different things as they lead up to Thanksgiving.
Well, I wanted to do something a little similar, so let's back up a bit...
A couple of days after coming back to Japan, my brother emailed that the care giving company that was taking care of my Dad suddenly decided to pull out and referred us to another company.
To tell you the truth, I felt hurt because the day I left to go back to Japan, the coordinator came to visit my Dad and made no mention that they were thinking of pulling out.
Since "we" only had about two weeks to find some other kind of care, I asked around my network of friends. Many gave very helpful information which I passed on to my brother. (Thank you!)
My brother also asked his network of friends, as well as family, who helped him look into different options.
After checking into various options, my brother decided that the best would be to look for a facility to care for my Dad.
Apparently my Dad wasn't too thrilled with this decision and how could you blame him?
Unfortunately his Parkinsons seems to have advanced so more full-time care was definitely needed.
So after many email exchanges...my brother emailed the other day to say that my Dad moved into his new "home".
I hope he'll adjust nicely.
Being so far away from everything has been a bit nerve wracking for sure, but I appreciate everyone who helped in this process.
I'm also thankful for the internet, its help keep me in the loop.
It's Friday here, I hope you'll have a great weekend.
